At Matt Fiddes Kent we have a highly skilled and passionate team that teach students of all ages and abilities from the "Mighty Matts" pre-school classes to our mixed adult classes, all within our special family and community based schools. The philosophy is simple; "Everyone is important and everyone is unique."

Children within the Matt Fiddes Kent Schools learn valuable life skills such as, Respect, Discipline, Goal-Setting, Concentration, Stranger Danger, First Aid and lots more besides whilst having fun in a safe and structured environment.  Martial Arts is not just about kicking and punching but about developing well-rounded individuals who have an important role to play in their communities.

The Matt Fiddes Kent method incorporates a combination of techniques, syles and principles from a variety of martial arts including, Karate, Kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do, JuJitsu, the use of martial arts weapons, and Kung Fu, all of which provides our students with a well-balanced self-defence system.  

We also work closely with schools and communities to help promote the benefits of physical exercise, martial arts and valuable life-skills by providing School Clubs, PE Lessons, fun Martial Arts Activity Days and School Talks.
